a·que·ous phase

the water portion of a system consisting of two liquid phases, one mainly water, the other a liquid immiscible with water (for example, benzene, ether).

aqueous phase

a fluid stage of a substance that is based on water in a liquid state, such as a solution of a substance in water.

As to the mass transfer with a chemical reaction it should be noted that our previous work [3] demonstrated the absence of a phenolic compound in the organic phase as well as the absence of ozone in the aqueous phase during the main reaction period, that is [C.

When a low surface area adsorbent (the red or yellow dispersant) is present, an excess of the triblock in the aqueous phase builds, and the interaction of the oxyethylene units with the talc surfaces begins a peptization of large platelet aggregates that results in an increasingly competitive adsorbent surface area to the colorant's surface area.
